PeerJ, the journal, is now divided into separate Sections by field.
Section Editors have oversight of their section to ensure the journal maintains a fair peer review process and the highest standards of scientific practice in their fields.
Within each Section, the Academic Editors regularly identify and highlight the most important new PeerJ publications in their field. Learn more & Meet the Section Editors.
Section Editor rating: 8 / 10Stephen Macknik –– The editor and reviewers are enthusiastic.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Chin Ping Tan –– Evaluation of potential bioactiive compounds from a less commonly consumed fruit is an interesting topic to researchers working on the similar research area.
Editor rating: 7 / 10Jennifer Vonk –– Behavioral flexibility is an important topic that gets at underlying species differences in cognition. Here, the authors were able to examine wolves and dogs, which may point to the impact of domestication on some aspects of canid cognition.
Editor rating: 9 / 10Kenneth De Baets –– The manuscript introduces a new metric for drift potential of cephalopod shells relevant for paleontologist and biologists. When applying it on fossil ammonoids and modern nautilids, the author demonstrates that long post-mortem drift is more than sometimes claimed and that their geographic ranges are reasonable proxies for geographic range during life making it also of great interest to biogeographers and ecologists. The results also suggest the presence modern or recently extirpated populations of Nautilus in the Indian ocean, which is of relevance for conservation efforts.
